 +First you cannot use the USB port off the cutter. ​ MUST use the 9pin serial to USB cable!!! ​  For software, you need Inkscape and pyserial. ​ Run Inkscape as root or Administrator. Inkscape drawing/​text object > Path menu > Object to Path > Extensions menu > Export > Plot.      Set 4800 baud and on Linux I used /​dev/​ttyUSB0. On windows it would be your COM port.
